I passed over this vido several times because I thought it would just be another depressing look at fake schools. BUT,
Do you see the class sizes??!! Discipline is absolutely necessary with such class sizes. Can children learn in classes of that size? I guess they can - and it isn’t just me saying so. The whole point of this video is that students can learn in those class sizes.
Keep a copy of this video - it disproves most of what modern education is selling.
